You’ll want to be prepared for windy conditions when navigating business meetings, so here is what bring to make sure you always look buttoned-up and ready instead of windswept and unsteady.
- A thick scarf that protects your neck and face from the Lake Michigan swirls is a vital addition to your suitcase. Those with color or pattern can enliven your business basics.
- Layer up for Midwest weather. Men can wear a V-neck sweater over a tie and a button-down shirt under a coat, while women can button up a cardigan over a long-sleeve shirt.
- In summer, male business travelers can still bring their signature suits but might want to reassess their footwear. Fashionable wingtips that can be worn without socks are a staple of Chicago summers.
